I love it, but unfortunately i don't know how to crochet, and i don't have anyone near me that can make one fo rme.

Does anyone have a crochet lotus flower pattern? I would like to make a corsage for my niece for her wedding shower and the lotus flower is her theme.

how do you do the p stitch?

Hi, yarnit 7156198. Look for the PDF link on the manufacturer's website. For the crochet violets pin, you'll find it on the following page: http://www.kreinik.com/kshop/product.php?productid=119&cat=33&page=1 MissMaggie's suggestion does not save the project to your computer. That process only saves a link to it in your favecrafts account, which is probably not anything near what you were asking.

Hi yarnit 7156198, All you have to do is click the save project button at the top. Hope this helps! -Editors of FaveCrafts
